  1. I’m wondering the EXACT SAME THING. Have an Onkyo tx-nr676 running my new Cornwalls and my family room theater, which actually sounds really good. But would say, a Marantz SR6015 sound better?
  2. All I have is a multimeter. Guess I'll get out the soldering iron.
  3. It makes sense that you'd be able to test them while they're still connected to the crossover, right? Or do I have to melt the solder, disconnect them, and test them in isolation? I mean, they're what's between the positive and negative leads of my ohm meter, right?
  4. Thanks, but I’m hung up on 18thread count linen.
  5. Just got off the phone with Bob Crites...capacitors inbound. Called Ralph at Duracrest...no special linen available....at the moment.
  6. I know there's a "search" function on the forum, because I've spent half the day looking for this info. And the other half of the day looking for 18 threadcount linen online. Here's the deal: just bought a pair of '84 Cornwalls and really, really want to put in new grills with the same sort of linen material they put on the Cornwall III Special Editions: https://www.klipsch.com/products/cornwall-iii-special-edition Does anyone know where I can get a couple of yards of this? Thanks in advance.
  7. Have to modify the listening area a bit first so they'll fit. I'm in no hurry.
  8. Why should I wait on caps? I'm asking because this is my first Heritage set. I have a few things to learn.
  9. Just got home with them yesterday. First BLO oiling today. They sound awesome, and I've only listened with a crappy 20 year old boombox receiver with my iphone plugged into it via analog connection so far. Should I still update the capacitors? And planning to replace the stock grills with Beige linen, with the classic Klipsch badge in the upper right-hand corners. Took a look inside: K77, K57, K33, B3. All the goodies. Original owner said he'd never taken the backs off.
  10. This guy wants $1k for these. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/320509032704398/ Turned down my offer of $600. Going to need a new passive radiator, the cabinets are scratched, and only one speaker has a label. Crossovers have never been replaced. These are worth what? About $500? $600 tops?
  11. Just to see what the market will bear, how much did you get for them?
  12. What's the difference between the P/N and the S/N?
  13. I thought we were supposed to decode the Serial Number, not the P number? Original owner says he bought these in 1989, but it looks like they were built in 1990?
  14. I moved to San Diego from Kansas City in 1990, and I'm never going back. Pete's right, do the math, list the pros and cons, then make your decision. Get a serious salary, because everything's more expensive out here. If you can afford to buy a house, or even a nice condo, do it. You will never lose money over the long haul on California real estate.
  15. Thanks to Bobby Crites, My RS-7 is back in business. And for anyone who has the same problem, use the titanium drivers, not the impregnated fabric ones.
  16. Thanks for the reply. Can't seem to find a price for those on Crites' website.
  17. Crossover's fine. Disassembled the speakers, woofer is fine, but neither tweeter budged the test meter. Thing is, the links you posted list replacements for the RS-7 as being fabric, but what I pulled out of my RS-7 looks like this: And yep, one of the voice coil wires had separated.
  18. And what are the impedence settings for each speaker? I know it's 8 ohms for the whole thing, but what should the impedence be for each cone?
  19. Thanks--I assume by "network" you mean the crossover? Connections and wiring inside the speaker cabinet are all fine.
  20. I was using a pair of RS7s as front mains in our new house until we could purchase a pair of bookshelf speakers for our family room (RF-7 IIs didn't work in the room--they are now happily chugging along in my home office). Just picked up a pair of RB-61 IIs for the mains, and decided to use the RS7s as front height speakers for a 5.1.2 setup. But when I re-ran Audyssey EQ, there was a distinct lack of treble coming out of the right RS7, so I took it down, grabbed a tone generator, pulled off the woofer, and tested each speaker beyond the crossover. Woofer was fine, but only a faint signal coming from one tweeter, and nothing coming from the other. When I put the system back together and hooked the tone generator up to the binding posts, I only got sound from the woofer. I then dropped an email explaining the situation to Klipsch support. I've never really cranked these speakers up. Questions: Is this a known issue? Has this ever happened to you, and what did you do to solve it? Does anyone know the model number of replacement tweeters for the RS7 and where to find them? Could this be a crossover issue? Thanks in advance.

  22. Rubber around sub edge is toast. Anyone know if Klipsch offers replacement drivers?
  23. I'm assuming, by the lack of responses, that I've pretty much figured this out?
  24. And if the RF7s in front aren't that great an idea, should I just put a pair of KL-7502s in the ceiling up front? But then there's still the "tweeter pointing in the wrong direction" issue. In-walls are a no-go, because we'll likely have bookshelves on either side of the chimney.
